What if I am Infected?

Hep C can be cured!

Treatment for Hep C is usually one pill a day for a few months, with few side effects.

After a confirmatory Hep C test the Viral Hepatitis Case Navigator – a dedicated member of Health Department staff – will provide Hep C infected persons with the following:

  • Post-test counseling and education
  • Referrals for assessment and evaluation for Hep C treatment and care
  • Linkage to other support services:
    • Substance Abuse
    • Mental Health
    • HIV (if co-infected) to Ryan White Case Manager
    • Syringe Services Programs

For more information check out our Hep C Resources page, or you can contact the Viral Hepatitis Case Navigator on (423) 209-8039.
